4-year-old boy found in river after Okla. storm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City police say the body of a 4-year-old boy was pulled from the Oklahoma River after a violent storm that produced tornadoes and heavy rain.

Lt. Jay Barnett says the boy was swept into from the river on city's south side Friday night after he and six other family members sought shelter in a drainage ditch. Barnett says a 5-month-old was also pulled from the river and is in critical condition and a woman was also rescued - her condition was unknown Saturday.

Barnett and a spokeswoman for the state medical examiner's office say they're not certain whether the child is included in the nine confirmed dead as a result Friday's storm and tornado.

Barnett says a man and three other children younger than 5 are still being sought.
